Well, this news sucks big time! Richie Sambora is dropping out of the current leg of the Bon Jovi "Because We Can Tour" with the next show being in Canada.

Bon Jovi's official web site released this comment about Sambora;

Due to personal issues, Richie Sambora will not be performing on this upcoming leg.  All shows will go on as scheduled.

There was no inclination that Sambora was to drop out of the tour even via his Twitter account where he posted about watching cover videos by fans for "Every Road Leads To Home" his latest solo single.

We know that Sambora has had substance abuse issues in the past but we will not speculate until we know what exactly is going on.

This leg of the tour will end in San Jose, California April 25th.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Hope things look up for Sambora & Bon Jovi soon!
